"A Disinterment … A Ghost … A murdered actor Jamie Aldrich Mazie and Sam have moved to Ponca City, OK, for new challenges, but signs point to trouble the very first weekend. OSBI ‘cold case’ investigator Chase Longhorn delivers the first unsettling news: an investigation has begun into the death of Sam’s first wife, Reba, a decade ago; her body is being disinterred. Then, Jamie learns that a fellow teacher and cast member in the high school production she is co-sponsoring has been murdered. The drama, which the teacher was co-writing, focuses on the Ponca City Grand Prix races, held for over 20 years on a road track at Lake Ponca. Finally, when Cousin Trudy brings Jamie’s pets to her, she drops the final bombshell: she’s seeing ghosts in her old Pawhuska home and one of them is Reba. Jamie’s mother ices the disaster cake: she’s moved in with them and finds her situation at Sam and Jamie’s house–including two dogs and a cat–unendurable. As life goes from bad to worse, Jamie realizes someone has a vendetta against Sam, and it encompasses everyone–and everything–he holds dear."
